Democrats against the Constitution

Senate Majority leader Harry Reid (D. Nevada) recently made the following comment:

"The president does not have the authority to launch military action in Iran without first seeking Congressional authorization"

That will come as quite a surprise to Bill Clinton who launched cruise missiles at Iraq and went into the Bosnian conflict, both without such authorization. Same with Ronald Reagan and his bombing foray into Libya.

In this era of non-education, it’s understandable if the average man-on-the-street thinks that Mr. Reid has a point. But Congressmen are supposed to know better. Either Mr. Reid is glaringly ignorant for a man in his position or he’s simply trying to rally Americans against the President with bogus civics. Either way it’s scary.
